Hi MIUIers!

Now I'm introducing a new series named Freetalk and the first topic is about Android upgrade since many users are eager to get one. Though it's a small talk, but yet we still can't give a proper answer for this question, "Do we really need Android upgrade? Will it change our life that much? Or is it just a gimmick?"

Let's say that we got excited when there's a new "major" upgrade. Who doesn't? But have we ever thought is it worth for us to wait and to whine about it?


The major upgrade pace is too fast

miui_forum_mi_mix_2_1515143807023.jpg


Back in 2015, we have Android Marshmallow that officially released around October and it wasn't even a year that the Nougat officially comes in August left the MM or on 6.0.1. Then a year later comes Oreo and it seems the 8.0 get ditched too soon because few months later comes Oreo 8.1 and the API is different too.

The problem is, the API for each version are different and because of that, it needs a new driver, new kernel, and new lines of codes. In terms of software development, changing API in less than a year is disastrous. So, if we talk about hardware [read: handsets], it'll be more complicated than we ever thought.

Of course, vendors wants to give us their best, but please note that they still have limitations. The major upgrade, in this case, Android upgrade, will follow their market. Most of the time, the urgency scale will comes with this order: newer devices, last year flagship, then the most demanded product, and last is the rest of the devices. It will be always like that. Business is business.

Kind of wondering why I talked about this on our current topic? Here's why.


There's no bug-less software



Bug-less software, OS, or a ROM is a myth. Stable ROM, in MIUI for instance, is a ROM that signed off without any critical bugs. Basically, with Stable state, we can expect a ROM without critical bugs even we might need a workaround to get rid some annoyances with a factory reset, clean flash, or reinstalling some apps.

The maintenance for this process only is really high, especially for a vendor that release a lot of devices. Bugs will still there even if the developers just make a little adjustment in a Home Screen. Sometimes we have small glitch, and critical in another, but one day somehow, it just works. Besides, it's not strange that occasionally the ROM or any software or firmware get pulled out because of unnoticed bugs shown in users experience.

This is the unwritten rules in software development: deprecated, stalled, or ongoing development.

To adapt to another API is another problem. The codes will need to rewrite and we can expect another bugs. From little glitch, performance drop, battery drains, or even another critical bugs we can't ever imagine because the codes must adapt to the new API. It's not that easy.

With the hype of Android upgrade, we might forgot that even Nougat and Oreo has a performance issue and battery drains as well. It comes across many devices from many vendors. Surely the development and maintenance costs will be higher and needs more time. Please note that this is the reason why I said the urgency scale will be in order.


We never use our phone differently



While there's bunch of features added in every Android upgrade, believe it or not, most of them doesn't really change our usage even the very famous split screen on Nougat or now, picture-in-picture that introduced in Oreo. We wants it badly, but hence almost of us are never use it even we believe it'll be useful somehow.

Some of apps aren't fully supporting it, yet the phone size, that mostly around 5", is not even practical in daily usage.

We still use our phone casually for years since the first smartphone ever introduced: messaging, calling, browsing, gaming, or even scrolling in social media. Other than that, it'll be listening music and taking photo and make a doodle on it. Advance users are in small number, and vendors often will not taking focus on them.


So, is the Android upgrade a good move or a really just a gimmick?



The answer is depends. In most cases, we still thought that customer satisfaction is much preferred than any other things. This is true, with but. The customer need to make a real good feedback about what they want and what they really need.


We can't rush major upgrade since it can costs as much as rewriting the codes, redefine the design language to embody the "vision" of the developer itself, along with some tweaks on another stuff. The ideal time for a major upgrade should be two years minimum, not less. It involves squishing bugs, adding some features and functions, yet refining the software.


On the other side, major upgrade will be needed if it contains a major changes include the UX, functions, and not just for squishing bugs e.g. cumulative updates. Often, after another version of Android released, vendors need to tweak it and fix all of unique bugs that comes to every single device. It takes time and it needs huge effort to make it really works. Because of that, many vendors won't bother to spend their time and money to doing all of this in really short interval.


Then the upgrade just comes to several devices, and they just give another devices a regular software support including features in limited numbers, monthly patches, and maybe critical patch.


But now, since the interval is too fast, the OS is not even matured at all. We got many performance and compatibility problems across all the devices. Both Nougat and Oreo shared the same problems: performance drop and battery drains that seems can't be fixed in the short time.


So, what do you think?


Is the Android upgrade much needed for your life or you just enjoy your devices without bothered with regular "major" upgrade?

This question shouldn't ever been asked. If custom ROMs could give Android upgrade to majority of the devices, why not Xiaomi?! Xiaomi gives only one Android upgrade, but custom ROMs give till the hardware doesn't support the new Android upgrade features.

Now I wonder why Redmi Note 4 with almost the same hardware than Redmi 4 Prime has Android 7 with MIUI 9 and we are still waiting for MIUI 9 with Android 6.

I thing this is not only about hardware or code....

Yes,  I think it'll be better to have an Android Oreo.

Yes we need; newer api, newer features (like splitscreen for Android 7+ for now or new notifications) etc. There are also other changes under mask which causes how system works.

I am happy with Kitkat on my precious nostalgia Mi 3, not interested with Android upgrades.
